100 Years Ago: 1923

Although the warm weather prevented the afternoon activities of the Bates carnival Saturday, the general committee held the grand masquerade in Chase Hall, and the closing event of the fourth carnival was a great success. Following the grand march and the awarding of prizes for the most striking costumed, dancing was enjoyed until 10 o’clock.

The prize for the most fancy couple went to Walter Johnson and Helen Chase. The couple were strikingly dressed in a colonial costume. The most comic lady of the party was found to be Viviene Rogers, arrayed as a Parisian gentleman. Carl Steady was declared the most comic gentleman when he appeared in a lady’s costume. Harris Palmer masqueraded as a Mandarin was entitled to the prize for the most fancy gentleman.

Miss Hagel Monteith,‘23, in the role of a governess, and two of her classmates, Ruth Leader and Jeanie Bachelin, masqueraded as her children, won the admiration of the entire gathering and she was awarded the prize for the most unique costume.
